    The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 debuts at media previews during the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Jan. 13, 2014. Motor Trend calls it the "lighter, faster, and ridiculously more powerful" Z06 version. With over 625 horsepower from a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8, the Z06 "should be the quickest production Corvette ever built," Motor Trend said.

    The Chevrolet Silverado was named North American Truck of the Year at the Detroit auto show, while the Corvette Stingray was named North American Car of the Year. This is the first time Chevrolet, under General Motors, won both in the same year. Silverado's available 5.3L EcoTec3 V-8, 355 horsepower, "seamlessly switches" to four cylinders to save fuel, to 23 mpg on the highway.

    The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, 2014 North American Car of the Year, is "the most powerful standard model ever," with 455 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque from a 6.2L V-8 engine – and 460 horsepower /465 lb-ft with the available performance exhaust system – enabling models with the available Z51 Performance Package to sprint from 0-60 in 3.8 seconds, Chevy says.

    The new F-150 has a body built almost entirely out of aluminum, which is more expensive than steel. "Without question, the Ford F-150 is THE vehicle" of the show, Motor Trend said. The aluminum alloy body and bed save 500-700 lbs. "Paired with new smaller displacement, high efficiency engines and you're talking about some serious, game changing technology for America's best selling vehicle."

  • The Surprising 'Winner' of the Detroit Auto Show So Far

    The Porsche 911 Targa, an iconic version of the 911 sports car, debuted Jan. 13. "Named after the legendary Targa Florio endurance race, the 911 Targa is synonymous with sexy, topless fun," Motor Trend said of the car with the "tricky" top. The entire rear roof section cantilevers up and back, making way for the fabric roof panel. Since 1965, Targas have accounted for 13 percent of 911 sales.

    Is Toyota getting back into the sports car game? "With its classic front engine, rear drive proportions and bleeding edge design, the FT-1 Concept sure looks the part and is reminiscent of the company's iconic 2000GT and Supra," Motor Trend said. "Though strictly a concept for now, a business agreement with BMW means this baby could be German powered. Oh ja."
